Need alternative suggestions to my Icon Stg6 suspension
Sup guys. So recently, taking the suggestion of a fellow Tundra owner, I upgraded to all Icon Stage 6 coilovers suspension components with the hopes of achieving a "cushier" ride. This Tundra owner in particular happens to also own a Gen2 Raptor, and he said that the Tundra with the Icon Stage 6 suspension rides BETTER than his Raptor. Since everything I've read and seen about the Gen2 Raptor is how luxuriously they ride I got all excited and called up SDHQ for the suspension install. But it's with great disappointment that I report this has not my experience. This suspension setup is way too stiff, even at the softest dampener settings. The highways out in my area are crap and this suspension is just way too jarring.
Sooooo, I'm gonna give one more suspension setup a shot before I give up and make the big crossover to the Raptor. What would be the next step for a more compliant, surface absorbing suspension? Am I going to have to explore mid travel options, here? I've thought about getting the OEM Fox Pro suspension and just swapping that in, but not sure where the best deal could be had for something like that.
Anyway, whatever thoughts you guys have to share on this would be greatly appreciated.
